Kano establishes grazing reserves to end farmers-herdsmen crisis


Kano has announced five grazing reserves established to curb recurring clashes between herdsmen and farmers in the state.

Governor Abdullahi Ganduje said in talks with the newly elected officers of the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders ‎Association, it was no longer fashionable for herdsmen to wander through the length and breadth of the country searching for pasture.

He said the state government would provide mechanised boreholes, fodder and other facilities in the reserves to prevent them from roaming in search of animal feed.‎

The governor said more than 60 herdsmen were trained in Turkey for animal insemination to improve reproduction in cattle and in line with international best practice
